Junior formula car standout JDC MotorSports is excited to announce that Neil Alberico will be part of its multi-car title challenge in the 2012 Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship powered by Mazda. The California racer joins the Minnesota-based squad following a strong campaign in the British Formula Ford ranks this past season.

JDC MotorSports has firmly set its sights on the USF2000 National Championship title in 2012, and with the addition of American up-and-comer Alberico to its driver line-up, it is taking another step towards achieving this goal. A former karting and Bondurant Championship Race Series champion, the Californian will make his USF2000 debut with JDC following a very successful season of Formula Ford competition in England and Europe that included a race win and a podium finish at the world renowned Formula Ford Festival. The Team USA Scholarship winner will pilot a Mazda powered Van Diemen in the Mazda Road to Indy series, partnering fellow JDC MotorSport rookies Scott Hargrove, Michael Johnson and Zac Silver at JDC MotorSports.

"We are very excited to add Neil to our 2012 roster," stated Church. “He brings a great attitude and a great deal of Formula Ford experience.”

"I'm so psyched to be competing in the USF2000 Championship with John Church and JDC Motorsports!" commented Alberico. "It feels great to come home after a solid season in Europe and put together a deal with such a well respected team like JDC. I am overly confident that all the guys at JDC will do a fantastic job for me during the season. I couldn't be more happy with my decision!"

Alberico's new partnership with JDC MotorSports marks not only a return to North American competition for the talented racer, but also the next chapter in his burgeoning motorsports journey. The Los Gatos, Calif., native first started racing karts at the age of 10, ultimately winning titles in the Junior Sportsman, Junior Super Sportsman, and Junior Puma classes in the International Karting Federation. Building on this success, Alberico secured the TaG Senior title in the WSK North American Series, before making the move to car competition. His transition to junior formula car action proved to be a winning affair, earning the Bondurant Championship Race Series title via 10 wins in his debut campaign. Alberico made the move 'across the pond' this past season, racing in the highly competitive MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain. Further establishing his position as a young driver on the rise, the 19 year-old helped develop the latest Ray chassis en route to a strong ninth place finish in the title chase. Alberico followed this up with a podium finish at the historic 40th Formula Ford Festival as a Team USA driver.

JDC MotorSports and Alberico's pursuit of the 2012 Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship powered by Mazda title commences on March 16-17, with Rounds One and Two as part of the 60th Anniversary Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. Prior to the season-opener, the Californian will pilot his JDC racing steed in the six-race Cooper Tires Winterfest, which gets underway on February 6-7, at Sebring International Raceway.
